A Spectacular Opening for Heather Weston Bell; Lenae Price’s Big Sing-Along
Another interesting Rusty Satellite Show features two smart young women — both involved in the arts.
When Heather Weston Bell was making her way through Eastern High School and the University of Kentucky, she was determined that she could create her own career in the arts — and she did. She’s been at the Kentucky Center for 18 years, and this week was part of the team that launched the spectacular Old Forester Paristown Hall with a sold-out Trombone Shorty show. We talk that show, the venue and her arts-centered career.
Lenay Price grew up in Memphis and spend a few years in New York, before she and her husband (Jordan Price, a former Rusty Satellite Show guest) picked Louisville as their new home. She’s been involved in various ways with the Jewish Community Center for seven years. But she’s now involved in what she says is her most exciting project. Love Sings Louder will bring together diverse groups at Iroquois Park in September to simply sing a song together, and in the process show the world a thing or two about peace and harmony.
The highlight of my week took place on the golf course — I had an eagle on the Par 4 17th at Iroquois when my six-iron rolled in the hole from 155 yards. That, and seeing Trombone Shorty at the Paristown Hall. Also, I had two burgers this week, one as a part of Louisville Burger Week, after going without one for about six months. Don’t tell my doctor.
